Quick question on licensing if anyone has tried this or not?
Solidworks allows for a single user license to be on a workstation and a home computer... So I have X64 on my workstation at the shop, and X64 on my laptop... I just upgraded to 8gb of ram on my laptop and really would like to keep the X64 OS to take advantage of it...
Here is my dilemma - I need to run X32 OS with an add-on for Solidworks.... I use an older Faro arm connecting through HiRes software froM Reverseengineering.com... The Faro arm I am using will only work on 32 bit OS... I just need to take positional information and points from the Faro arm within X32 Solidworks...then can save the data and go back to my standard x64 OS and go from there....using the X32 only for digitizing the information that I need.
So - since I am running Windows 7 X64 ultimate, I have the option to use the XP Mode virtual PC....which is 32 bit...
My question is this - will I have to activate / deactivate my Solidworks license on this machine each time I switch between the actual OS and the virtual XP mode??
Just curious if anyone has ever tried this?
